The Savannah House Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Himrod B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 31, 2012

1 Large lake, 2 planning sessions, 3 daring couples, 4 days of adventure. So many wineries -so little time!
Outcome of our adventure was nothing short of EPIC!
Pat was so helpful and kind returning emails and phone calls with answers to all my questions regarding the area. Once we arrived, he and Brenda made us feel like family.
The Savannah House embodies everything you could want in a quaint country inn. This is all made possible by two wonderful souls who truly put their guests comfort and needs first.
Add to that Pat's morning coffee and you have one awesome experience.

Jess you are something else - making two old retirees feel it's all worth it in a big way. You, like all our guests, are wonderful to meet and connect with, and bring so much joy to us. Thank you for visiting and please come back soon.

What a lovely inn. The room was beautifully decorated with so many little personal touches. You felt welcomed as soon as you walked into the office. Pat and Brenda are so nice. The location on the lake was perfect too. There is a beautiful view from the hillside and lots of chairs and fire pit outside to enjoy every night. If you're looking for a clean room, soft comfortable beds with reasonable rates this is the place for you. Go enjoy your stay and have fun visiting the wineries.

This hotel is great for many reasons, it is VERY clean, pat and Brenda are the nicest people you could meet and their pets are adorable :) they were so helpful with anything you needed at anytime! They were always close by! Brenda ( I'm assuming) decorated the rooms so lovely, lots of little details like books and great smelling soaps :) for the record, I have never written a review before. Typically I like to stay at a new ( fancy as my husband would say) hotels. You know the ones with granite countertops for the sinks and every bell and whistle you could think of. Let me just tell you, I would stay at the savannah house over any other hotel hands down. Consider yourself lucky if they have a room available for you.

My husband & I had never been to the Finger Lakes region, so we picked the Savannah House based solely on photos and reviews. We were not disappointed! Our room was very cozy and immaculately clean – with super soft sheets and towels, an electric fireplace for ambiance (!) and simple but elegant little decorative touches throughout. Everything smelled fresh & clean. We had a nice view of Seneca lake from our window & caught the changing leaves at their peak. Pat & Brenda were great hosts – very friendly and welcoming. They were a great help with information about the area along with places to visit and eat. They have done a great job transforming this little gem into a wonderful place to stay.

The beds are so comfortable, it is hard to leave in the morning. But the delicious morning coffee is a great incentive. The bed sheets and linens were soft and perfect. The owners are like gracious hosts. The property is beautiful and the view of the lake is really spectacular. The leaves were changing and the fall colors were outstanding. On our first night we sat by the outdoor fire and enjoyed the company of fellow guests. We have definitely decided to make every effort to return next fall.

You came at the perfect time to enjoy the peak fall foliage on the Wine Trail. We too look forward to that time of year and never tire of it. Having an unending source of worlsd class wine nearby only adds to that experience. On top of that, we get to meet and spend time with many great guests like you. Thank you for your warm and sincere comments. You will always have friends here.

The Savannah House just glows with the warmth and personality of the owners … it is so obvious that Brenda and Pat love what they do; it reflects in every aspect of the Inn.
The boutique-style rooms are both elegant and welcoming. Everything looks, smells and fells so fresh and clean.
We doubt that you will find a more warm and genuine welcome from any Innkeeper anywhere! We felt like favorite family members returning home!
Memories of sitting around the roaring outdoor fireplace with friends and other guests … and Brenda’s matchless gourmet morning coffee are just a few of so many added touches of service superiority.

Room Tip: We loved Rooms 1 and 2 ... they are near the outdoor fireplace! All the rooms we saw were beautiful...

We stayed at Arrowhead cottage for 3 nights in the second week of October 2012 and had the most amazing time. The cottage is on the lake front and has its own pier leading onto the lake. The view was breathtaking. Pat and Brenda have been so helpful replying to my emails very quickly and were very welcoming when we got there even though we arrived quite late. Pat was there to greet us and kindly spent some time with us answering any questions we had about the area and sorted us out with contact details of people that we might need to do various activities etc, which we used. We unfortunately got the check out time wrong and left an hour late, but pat was really nice about it and didn't make a fuss at all, which was very kind. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone. The area was quiet and peaceful which was exactly what we wanted after having been in e city for a week. We visited Watkins glen state park which was very nearby and had a lovely time there too, it was absolutely stunning.

Kate and family were a pleasure to have as guests, and we were happy to see that they had such a good time at our place. Their late departure was an honest oversight, and they did such a good job picking up before they left that our housekeeper had smooth sailing as a result. We were impressed that they were so conscientious and that they appreciated the manor in which we prepared the cottage for them. We very much appreciate Kate's wonderful comments and hope she and her family will visit us again.
